  • My employer pays a portion of my membership otherwise I would not be able to afford it. Some specials are good depending on what you want. For my birthday a few years ago I signed up for a six week deal on tennis lesson (a birthday gift to myself) and now I can participate in this sport for a long time.

    Also, you can ask if they have discounts for your profession. As an educator I get discounts on lots of things including gym membership. You would be surprised, It can't hurt to ask. - 8/6/2011 9:15:07 AM
  • I think the article is stating that IF you move AND it is our of the radius you may be able to get out of the contract by showing proof of address. - 8/6/2011 9:10:12 AM
  • "One option is moving outside your gym's contract-stipulated radius to the club (and its affiliates), which usually requires proof of an address change."
    Are you realistically suggesting that I move house & home and presumably change jobs just to get out of a contract??!! Would that really be cheaper than paying a contract that I don't use??!! - 1/3/2011 4:05:27 PM

    I thought the article was excellent. As a past gym member I could really relate to the advice given. To those out there who are locked into contracts, my advice would be "use the gym". Plan to go for 20minutes and do it. Do this 3times each week, then move on from there. Good luck to everyone for 2009javascript:void(0); - 1/13/2009 8:05:36 PM
